Editorial Reviews

`Research students could use this book as a reference to develop their own protocols by using guidelines presented. UPlant Cell Culture provides a better understanding of the increasingly important role of newer methologies in plant biotechnology. I recommend this book to anyone with aninterest in cell culture.'Anupam Gaonkar, Florida Atlantic University, Economic Botany, Vol. 50, 1996
